Modern Capital Does Palm Springs

The Kaufmann House

The Kaufmann House by Richard Neutra.

Been running around Palm Springs trying to take in all the architecture. So much to see and so little time. I did take a three-hour bus tour yesterday. We were honored to have Donald Wexler on the tour with us. (More to come on Wexler’s work and impact on Palm Springs in another post.) ┬áHere are just a few shots from yesterday. Make sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter for real-time mid-century modern updates from the desert.

Coachella Valley Savings and Loan

Former Coachella Valley Savings and Loan building by E. Stewart Williams. A nice view to end the day.

    So, so envious that you are there for Modernism Week. We’ve been twice, and were planning to go again this year; alas, client deadlines and out-of-town client travel precluded our doing so.

    It’s such an amazing place. Really, almost Mecca for us obsessed Mid-century Modernists!

    I’d live there in a heartbeat if I could only reconcile my anxiety about drought with living in a desert!

    Looking forward to more photos.
